Eastern Oklahoma/Northwest Arkansas Weather Summary
National Weather Service Tulsa OK
834 PM CST Thu Jan 18 2018

Surface high pressure continued to move off to the south and east
of the region, allowing for increasing southerly winds to return
to the area. South to southwest winds of 10 to 15 mph were common
across much of the area this afternoon. Also common were mostly
sunny skies, which in combination with the warm southerly winds
also allowed for the return of warmer temperatures. Highs by late
afternoon around the area ranged from the lower 40s to lower 50s.

Some thin high level cirrus clouds had moved over the area at mid
evening, otherwise fair skies prevailed. Southerly winds of 5 to
10 mph were common around the area this evening, with occasional
higher gusts observed at times across portions of northeast
Oklahoma. Mid evening temperatures varied from the lower to upper
30s.

Mostly clear skies are outlooked for the overnight. A steady south
wind of 10 to around 15 mph is also expected for much of the area
overnight, with the exception of portions of northwest Arkansas
where light winds are expected. The sustained winds will help to
keep temperatures elevated, resulting in a much warmer start to
the day Friday than has been observed over the last several days.
Morning lows tomorrow are expected to vary from the lower to upper
20s. Sunny skies are offered up again for the area on Friday.
Gusty south winds are also expected, with winds gusting into the
20 to 25 mph range for much of the afternoon. Daytime highs on
Friday will range from the lower to mid 50s, though a few upper
40s will be possible in the lower valley areas of northwest
Arkansas.
